* ''VideoGame/CarriesOrderUp'': [[CollisionDamage Bumping into a customer]], [[SlipperySkid spinning through a puddle]], or slipping on a BananaPeel will all cause you to lose a life, instantly. Subverted in "Friendly Mode", where you instead have RegeneratingHealth

* Ironically, Ado, the ThatOneBoss of ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamland3'', is this. Once you defeat all her drawings, she jumps down from her pedestal and blindly charges forward, only to die to '''ANY''' attack. Even Kirby's ''sliding kick'' can defeat her in one hit, and that attack is normally useless against bosses or minibosses. [[FridgeBrilliance There's a reason she makes you fight so many living drawings beforehand.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{LIT}}'' have Jake and Rachael. If either of them step into the darkness or take a hit from a boss, they die instantly.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'':
** Jumpman (later renamed [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]), from this arcade game. Not only will he die from touching one of the various hazards (barrels, spring-things, fire, pies), he'll also die if he falls several feet.

*** The second game did have an example of a boss with only one hit. [[spoiler:When you refight K.Rool in Krocodile Kore.]] The catch is that said boss has a very long string of attacks before they're finally vulnerable.

* ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares'': Thomas doesn't stand a chance against monsters, if they should grab him he will die instantly. To make up for this, DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist, as you will wake up in the nearest bedroom.

** ''{{VideoGame/Gauntlet}}'' (Atari Games) and Dragon Buster (Namco) were among the first arcade games to have a LifeMeter system (though in the former, your health was displayed numerically, rather than as a bar, although the latter had both). Later, ''{{Rampage}}'' had a LifeMeter as well.

In some cases, this creates the bizarre effect of giving the GoddamnedBats more health than the player.

* ''IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'': In this arcade game, pretty much everything can kill Indy in one hit. In the NES version, CollisionDamage from enemies and falling onto ground will merely stun Indy, but other hazards will kill him outright.

* ''VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac'': ''Rebirth'': [[spoiler:The Lost]] is a secret character that can't gain ''any'' extra Hearts of any form, so one hit and he's a goner. This in a game that is balanced for characters that start out able to take a few hits and progressively gain health throughout the game, making said spoiler character the game's HarderThanHard mode. If you do, however, have the patience and skill, he unlocks some of the best items in the game.
